The lawyer of the police officer who shot Nahel, who died on June 27 during a road check in Nanterre (Hauts-de-Seine), filed a complaint on Friday after receiving death threats, we learned from the person concerned, confirming BFMTV information.

"I received a plethora of insults and some threats," said the lawyer Thursday on the set of Cnews. "I'm used to being threatened but here... I'm coping too," he added. The hostile messages nevertheless led the lawyer to file a complaint.

The Versailles Court of Appeal decided to keep him in pre-trial detention on Thursday. During the hearing, the defense of Nahel's family put forward two arguments relating to continued detention: the risk of flight on the part of the police officer, especially with the money from the pot launched by Jean Messiha, a far-right columnist on CNews and former spokesman for Eric Zemmour, following his incarceration. But also the risk that he could repeat his gesture if he was remobilized as a police officer.

A wave of riots

"What shocks me is that here we have pre-trial detention for a person who is not a delinquent, who is not a criminal, who is not a drug trafficker, who is not going to go to Guatemala (...) who dedicated his life to enforcing the law," denounced Laurent-Franck Lienard this Friday on the CNews channel, saying that he was kept in detention to "extinguish the social fire".
